relationship changed and evolved with russia during the obama administration? what are the positives and negatives? guest: i think what has happened with russia, putin, who is the leader of russia, who came from the k.g.b., who came from the old soviet union, in my estimation is going back to his bad old ways. there was great hope for democracy in russia and nominally there are still elections and there's democracy but putin has consolidated power and has made it very difficult for democrats in russia to be able to have democratic government. and that's the big worry. and of course when you look at what russia has done and what china has done in the united nations, they have wielded their veto power and made it difficult for us to slap sanctions on iran, to help prevent iran from having a nuclear weapon. they have not been good players. and so i've seen russian democracy slide backwards. as long as putin is there, and it's really a shame because i think the russian people really want democracy. and i think putin is trying to be like the old communist leaders that we all remember, khr

we are dealing with john mclean and his son in russia. action ensues. the action is like 50 minutes of pure action and that what is make the movie worth seeing. the bad parts about it or the villain and the dialogue. what made the first die hard and the third die hard so classic were alan rickman and jeremy irons. classic villains that kept the movies afloat during the nonaction scenes. this does not have that. it is not the worst die hard. that was number two. not the best die hard either. i gave it a three out of five because the villains aren't that great but if you are a die hard fan, it is worth seeing in theaters eight years ago i started selecting movie ticket stubs and the first stub i ever collect was on june 3, 1995. it is die hard three. the ticket price was $3. >> that make me ill. >> i presented that stub to bruce willis and jeremy irons on the same weekend a couple of weeks ago and we'll have that interview coming up in the 8:00 a.m. hour. bruce willis was actually really surprised that i still had that. >> sure. >> i've been collecting those for 18 years. a locality o
excuse russia uses to continue supporting syria. the situations and regimes are very different, but the blind these governments are using to continue supporting the regime that commits human-rights abuses are the same lines. i think it is unfortunate because the u.s. in the short term and may seem like it strategic, but in the long term it is not sustainable. if anything, they're raising anti-to listen to it in a very fast way. losing a big credibility. >> on the security issue, the saudi monarchy as well as others are arguing against pressure against thebi government, alleging much of the popular unrest is being filled by iran seeking to stir up the shia population bahrain. your response to these allegations of iranian or iran being behind the uprising there? >> first of all, it is not very difficult to understand the situation in bahrain. the government's report brought about by the king accepted by the king, the commission of inquiry found no bahraini influence. but beyond that, the civil- rights movement started in the 1920's, long before the security issues of iran. at a t

indeed. ashley: we have the g20 getting together in russia this week. it seems the hot topic is the currency wars and i'm sure a lot of attention will be put on japan but they're not going to shed any tears, are they? they're quite happy to devalue the yen because they need their exports to get a boost. is there anything the g20 can do on that issue? >> well, as you've seen through the verbage in the press, the statement by the g7, subsequent clarifying statements and leaking of a potential draft statement by the g20 there is concern less that someone important, perhaps, japan, begins actually intervening in currency markets. that would be crossing a red line and could cause some real problems that could generate market volatility, could be damaging. so i suspect there's a bit of conflating in the public discussion what's going on. it is one thing to want your currency to be a bit lower. it is another thing to actively intervene. that would be unacceptable to everyone's partners. ashley: we'll be following the g20 carefully. thank you so much. john lipsky, with johns hopkins
in provocative behavior. they are isolated themselves from the west of the world. russia and china, almost the whole world has condemned what they have done. as a result of that, it should be a great concern to the international community that they are continuing to develop their capabilities to threaten security. not only of south korea, but to the rest of the world. for that reason, i think that we must take steps to make very clear to them that that kind of behavior is unacceptable. >> are there any sort of steps you are contemplating taking? >> i think it is a combination of a number of things that we have to do. one is the diplomatic steps that have to be taken. bringing the security conflict together to condemn their actions is very important. to organize the international community to do that. this morning i talked with the defense minister of south korea and we both agreed that we must make sure that we made clear that we are going to continue to conduct exercises and deploy our forces in that area. we are going to continue to show the north koreans that we are fully prepared to de
's obama. >> so hitler, castro, obama. stephanie: right. >> i don't know if russia's just never -- you would think that he's been to germany. it looks like he eats a lot of cheese, so in germany they in fact view hitler with such disdain that all types of freedom of expression relating to hit her and nazis are banned. they don't take it seriously yeah. [ laughter ] >> the primary victims of hitler were german, by the way. >> really quick. i want everybody out there to know, and this is true, you can google i marco rubio is a huge fan of hiphop music. if you watch his speech again knowing that and think of him at m.c. rubio, then you'll have a completely different view of him going forward. >> was he doing the ducky? that's what that was. he was doing the dougy. >> what you missed is underneath the camera, he was pouring out water for his homies and tea party that lost in 2012. stephanie: that's what was happening up in there. >> he was tapping his booze that's what he was doing. stephanie: thank you honey we'll see you next week. bye.

russia business grew 10%, our mexico business grew 7%. so continue to see good strength there. as far as developed markets go, europe obviously in the west has its challenges but eastern europe is doing quite nicely. and in the u.s., really over the last 6 to 8 months i would characterize it as a very slow, gradual strengthening in the consumer. slowing gradual, but nonetheless, detectable in there. so we do feel like the consumer environment is getting a little bit better in developed markets. >> that's something we've spoken about before you really see it in terms of the jobs picture because people stop in the morning at the gas station, and they go in to get their lunch, maybe to grab either a pack of chips that go along with that or grab a soda with it. what can you tell us just about where the average discuss her is in the morning? are they willing to go ahead and spend on things like that? >> you're definitely seeing a little bit more of that. i mean, certainly the beginning of this year is a tough read because there are so many complicated factors going into it. the weather cer
this movie. we're dealing with john mcclain and his son this time around. they're in russia and the action is like 50 minutes of the movie. that sells it. the problem is the bad guys. the first die hard and the third one had alan rickman and jeremy irons. those villains kept the movie afloat when it was not during action sequences. this one lacks a bad guy, which is great. so i gave it a three out of five. i stay say it's a good matinee. not the best die hard, but not the worst. "die hard 2" was terrible. interestingly enough, 18 years ago, i started collecting movie ticket stubs and the first stub i ever collected was "die hard 3". >> steve: three bucks to see the movie. >> three dollars. for some crazy reason, i booked bruce will police and jeremy irons, the bad guys from "die hard 3" on the same weekend. so i had to present them the stub and here is the video of their reaction. >> i saved my ticket stub. i want to show it to you. >> that's fantastic. >> look at the price of the ticket. three dollars back then. >> wow. that's the first stub i ever collected. >> look at that. >> i was li

countries -- russia, singapore, australia, brazil, chile, canada and the united kingdom. i recently shared what canada was doing to attract more entrepreneurs and today i'd like to share what's happening in the united kingdom and explain why it's in our country's best interest to act quickly to retain highly skilled and entrepreneurial immigrants. much like the united states, the u.k. has a range of visa categories for immigrants with varying skills and financial resources. but in 2011, the u.k. government made changes to simplify their visa rules in order to attract more talented entrepreneurs to their country. the u.k. recently created an entirely new type of visa for what they call perspective entrepreneurs. these individuals are allowed to enter the u.k. for a set period of time to secure funding and to start the process of setting up their businesses before they begin the traditional visa process. raising capital can be one of the more challenging aspects of starting a new business, and this visa gives entrepreneurs a running start. the u.k. has also changed its top visa category, tie
